life’s not fair…

a lady on the beach told me today that it was not fair when cici approached her joyfully without asking permission…

i say it’s not fair that cici cannot run and play on the beach
like other puppy dogs because she is pre-judged because of her breed

it’s not fair that ignorant humans hurt dogs like cici
and dogs like cici are blamed for being abused by people like Michael Vick

it’s not fair that people spread rumors, lies, and crazy stories
about my dog without finding out what a sweet, gentle, loving girl
she truly is

it’s not fair that people don’t understand that dogs bark, growl and make noises sometimes and that doesn’t mean anything bad, it’s just the nature of canines and how they communicate

it’s not fair that cici has been hurt by other dogs and blamed because the other dogs were not her breed

it’s not fair that i could get ticketed and made to pay for letting cici do what other dogs do

it’s not fair that some people are rich and get away with whatever they want and others are poor or middle class and have to pay (bailout anyone)

it’s not fair that we are at the beach and it’s too cold to enjoy it

it’s not fair that cici loves people and they don’t always love her back

it’s not fair that cici is full of joy and enthusiasm and life and some people are afraid of her because she wants to play with them

it’s not fair that she had more fun at the mall and Borders bookstore today where she got a lot of love, attention and belly rubs than she got at the beach

it’s not fair that some people are so devoid of humanity that they let others starve, live on the streets and in cars, and throw dogs and other humans away like trash

it’s not fair that some people care more about money than they do about people even their own family members

it’s not fair that people can be kind and generous one moment and mean and cruel the next

it’s not fair that some people are sick and cannot get the assistance that they need

it’s not fair that some people would love to have a dog but cannot because their landlord does not allow dogs

it’s not fair that some dogs are tethered outside and chained in the rain, cold and dark

it’s not fair that some people get mad at you for helping them and doing a great job

it’s  not fair that some people punish other people for giving them what they want

it’s not fair that some people ‘care’ more about animals than they do about other people

it’s not fair that life is not fair…

Life’s not always fair.  Sometimes you can get a splinter even sliding down a rainbow.  ~Cherralea Morgen

Sometimes life’s not fair but if you hang in there
You’re gonna see that sometimes bad is good
We just have to believe things work out like they should
Life has no guarantees but always loved by me
You’re gonna be “

  1. I wasn’t sure what side of the fence you were on with this article. I did want to point out that the way to make people feel safe around dogs on the beach is to have them under control. Your dog can play on the beach, even with people afraid of dogs (and some people are afraid of labs or little white fluffy terriers) if you are able to keep your dog with you. Dogs shouldn’t approach people or other dogs without permission, and with permission it can be game on!!

    The way to show people how lovely dogs can be is to not frighten them, and let them get used to well trained dogs.
